Enhancing the Language Arts: Using Creative Dramatics.
Sarratore, Janet; Bell, Beverly W.
Creative dramatics can be used effectively by the elementary teacher to help motivate students to become involved in various language arts activities. Dramatic play, pantomime, story dramatization, imagination exercises, creative movement, improvisation, and other structured activities encourage students to relate new experiences to old. As they increase their range of associations to familiar words and objects, students confront genuine purposes for acquiring the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. (Ten practical applications of activities for teachers are provided.) (NH)
